Credentialing Center

The Choice of Activity Professionals for Board Certification

The NAAP Credentialing Center is organized as an independent body exclusively for the purpose of certifying Activity Professionals that meet the standards and requirements set forth by the Center and have successfully passed the competency exam.  More specifically certification by this body will assure that the individual will meet the criteria required by CMS F-Tags 249 and 281 to direct quality of life programming for seniors and others that they serve.

This option is open to all Activity Professionals working in Activities/Recreation with the elderly.  Activity Professionals have the option of certification as an Activity Professional - Board Certified (AP-BC) or an Activity Consultant - Board Certified (AC-BC).

The  Credentialing Center will be happy to pre-approve your educational offerings.  Individual  pre-approvals  for sessions, work shops, conferences will use the Regular Pre-Approval Form.

Individuals  or groups who repeat the same material many times throughout the year including  both live and on-line education must use the  Alternative Pre-Approval Form

These forms can be filed out here, print and add the required documentation and mail to the office.
